american military hardware may soon end up in rebel hands on the front lines of the conflict in syria according to a white house official source speaking on condition of anonymity said that washington is preparing to send weaponry in response to opposition requests for surface to air missiles and rockets but speaking to reporters president barack obama himself hinted that military action if i were gay sions of chemical warfare in syria confirmed what is really a point not listen to what the president had to say. the only option that he gave was a scenario in which he said if the u.s. finds out that the syrian government has used chemical weapons against the rebels then obama strongly indicated that the u.s. would consider military intervention but he did not address what would happen if it was in fact the rebels or members of the opposition that have used chemical weapons throughout this ongoing conflict but at this point barack obama says that u.s. intelligence officials don't know who has used chemical weapons inside of syria
how they were used or when they were used the u.s. cannot confirm if it was in fact damascus who's used the weapons now obama said that his administration doesn't have a chain of custody that establishes exactly what has happened in syria and in the meantime damascus and the opposition have repeatedly accused one another of using chemical weapons on tuesday syria's ambassador to the u.n. allege that terrorist groups fighting alongside the rebels had used chemical material during an attack near the city of it live at attempted to blame that incident on the syrian government in the meantime the united nations says damascus has so far refused to allow a team of experts inside the country to investigate the use of chemical weapons but syrian officials say they would like a detailed list of what u.n. officials would be probing before entering the country but the u.s.
president has not indicated if the opposition in syria would suffer any consequences if it turns out that they are the ones that used chemical weapons when speaking to our former libertarian party presidential candidate gary johnson going to the terrible coast to coast interventions as reason enough not to get involved in syria. let's get all the information and after we've gotten all the information let's look at our military interventions in the past i suggest to you that there is not a military intervention in my life that has been warranted it hasn't resulted in consequences that. are unpredictable from the start these milla to our military interventions have resulted in hundreds of millions of enemies just country but but for our military interventions i don't think would otherwise exist you said seventy thousand people have been killed when you look at our past military interventions our military interventions resulted in another hundred
thousand losing their lives but somehow that's justified because it's on the side of good it's on the side of the united states and i'm being facetious i'm being facetious our military interventions don't end up improving these situations where u.s. may not be alone in eyeing a possible role in the syrian war that have been these islamists for the was there is it support the government days of terrorist bombings in damascus of the schools that that's coming up. the eighty four days of the guantanamo bay hunger strike bomber e.-x. trying to once again the attempt to shut down attention town and it goes against the american way. israel will soon to get its fifth dolfin that cost a submarine believed to be capable of launching cruise missiles with nuclear warheads the country's defense ministry has announced the move comes in sponsor of
terror that is decades long policy of remaining silent on its alleged nuclear weapons confirmed dostum was assumed to be behind egypt decision to pull out of nuclear nonproliferation talks in geneva on that now from points there. congress is it is withdrawing from a second week of the nonproliferation treaty talks in geneva in protest against what it is calling the failure to implement a nine hundred ninety five resolution for a middle east free of nuclear weapons now the cairo argument is an implicit reference to israel that has never either confirmed or denied having nuclear arms and it is also not a signatory to the nonproliferation treaty arab states and iran say that israel's presumed nuclear arsenal poses a threat to peace in the middle east as well as security in a statement by the egyptian foreign ministry its it was pulling out of the talks to quote send
a strong message of non acceptance of the continued lack of seriousness in dealing with the establishment of a nuclear free zone in the middle east caro went on to say that if not continue waiting forever for the invitation of this with a new ship now the egyptians are calling on member states and international bodies to be able sponsibility again quoting implementing legitimate international resolutions the argument however from the israeli side as well as the american side is that a nuclear arms freezone in the middle east chemically a reality until there is a broader arab israeli peace plan in place and iran could see its nuclear program the meeting currently underway in geneva is aimed at reviewing progress in implementing the nine hundred seventy nonproliferation treaty which is designed to prevent the spread of nuclear arms across the world well he spoke to british member of parliament germany corbin was also vice chairman of the campaign for nuclear disarmament he says that the nuclear free middle east will remain elusive and this
washington in brussels pressure israel to stop its atomic activities. well israel depends very heavily on trade with the european union and military aid from the united states we need action urgently by those two key players in the situation to put the most enormous pressure on on israel either through sanctions or withdrawing or lift or lifting the trade agreement which also has a human rights clause within it israel we know has nuclear weapons and has the land based system to deliver them and could have a c. system any country in the region that has a nuclear power system turkey egypt saudi arabia all could develop their own nuclear weapons if they wish to clearly the danger now is very nuclear arms race in the middle east with all the terrible consequences that that could bring about if ever they should be used. and western powers are in no hurry to stop israel's
alleged nuclear program as they encouraged it from the outset according to ramsey prudent of palestine chronicle dot com. if israel was going to listen they would have listened decades ago but again israel is dealing with the situation where there is i would say an international conspiracy to allow israel to continue with its quest for nuclear armament if it were not for western countries now germany but also britain originally france the united states even israel would have not been able to acquire such massive destructive capabilities some estimates with them at two hundred nuclear heads but others say about four hundred if not even more there is absolutely no need for israel to develop enough weapons to destroy the middle east several times over in the name of security you can't be achieving security at the expense of world peace. now may day europe is usually a time of celebration with historic labor reforms weren't before but this year it's
a different story protests against austerity in your voting rights are either on the way or expected in many countries and some of these rallies have already turned violent let's cross now to what is peter all over in berlin for more on this peter bring us up to speed what's planned for today. well may day across europe has become a day of demonstration people look to at the moment voiced their concerns about the ongoing financial crisis in the country we have seen some demonstrations taking place yesterday on tuesday here in germany where anti fascist protesters took to the streets they clashed with police and there were some some rather ugly scenes there in d.c. now we are expecting today on thursday that we will see people on wednesday that we will see. further clashes between police and far right demonstrators so basically
after the anti fascist demonstrations in germany we're now going to see the far right come out and bend their fury on the streets of germany now also protesters from across the political spectrum will be out all around the country now over in greece there is a general strike taking place today the greeks of course one of the hardest hit nations from the financial crisis that struck in two thousand and eight now they're coming out on to the city of athens and other major cities to show that well they're not happy that's the that's the major thing that is being voiced is that people of europe are not happy with the way that the crisis has been dealt with or well not dealt with as they see it now the first jew to the times the time difference and everything we have. protests took place in istanbul the first to get under way today now they are also the first to get under way the first to get under way and get violent now we've seen teargas flooding the streets of the turkish
capital as impeaches go out there now this day also has historic significance in turkey in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven there was a large demonstration that was resulted in well dozens of people dying on the streets of turkey due to the do it due to a crackdown by police there so this day has historical significance there but also people not happy with the way the situations are and the coming out to show just that. ok to keep us up to all of their thanks very much. that's exactly ten years since united states declared victory in iraq what followed was a devastating and huge expensive war the consequence that both countries are still struggling to come to terms with and washington that still insists the whole venture was a success that's ahead. sigrid

so-called muslim patrols are again active in london which is dante's trying to impose islamic ideals on the local population and while a string of arrests may have tempered their zeal they continue to promote their often quite radical views moderate muslim leaders fear their actions could discredit the whole community a surfer through ports. when visions of misinformation on tape find someplace serial or an unsuspecting members of the public first hit the headlines there was an outcry in britain well since then some arrests have been made because r.t.c. found out self-titled most of the pixels are still in operation the muslim community will continue to patrol the streets and clear the streets of the bus isn't illegal activities this group called themselves the shari'a project. they
make a point of differentiating themselves from the more hardline missile and patrol his videos cause such anger everything with things like this we're almost. out of nowhere brought to. our work. longer a little bit calmer and really focused on the rockets were launched this patrol they say that whilst they share many of the same keys as the other patrols they'd never employ the same tactics. for the background. i mean looking at those patrols i can say that is commendable that have come out and decided to take some kind of action against you know these things taking place in. their actual actions and the sad thing is we still have. faith in you to obviously there is always a better way to do things my approach as
a muslim is to advise my muslim brothers i see you do an action but perhaps more appropriate always advise me say what is better than many in the mainstream islam community these patrols are across the concern but if it is ensuring widespread media coverage many muslim leaders have condemned their actions is wrong and i'm representing. these individuals are a fringe minority you know they don't represent the muslim community there's two point seven million muslims and the you kate. and. you know they would never condone this type of behavior the groups were very clear to us that they have peaceful intentions some of the members are alleged to be involved with the more extreme patrols while members served three and a half years in prison on charges of terrorist fund raising and fighting terrorism . and it didn't take him home to make his more hardline these known. and
i believe so because i believe those who disbelieve in the oneness of god did find this they should be the end point anyway and those laws that the publisher with that would go with them would be a roll makes it into the hellfire so i have no respect for whatever i asked the leader of the ship project whether he was concerned by statements like that i said you know if you take it from the passive approach then i don't think you fix the country with our great country we're doing no shouting and protesting thank you forty four you start to see the sharee in britain i think some things are really costly for your day to day this in many base amongst the muslim and the white british community there are worries not just about these actions but about the potential repercussions the relatively small minority kids have all a much larger scale so r.t. . and the leader of hezbollah has hinted that the lebanon based militant group could intervene in the syrian conflict on the side of the government rebel forces
have reacted furiously using rather trying to undermine the region's stability when it comes out of two massive car blasts in the space of two days in central damascus organizing these twenty people rightists ripped through a bustling square the former interior ministry building monday's attack targeted the syrian prime minister who survived one of his bodyguards was killed because sorrow a blogger on the middle east thinks syria's political opposition is distance itself from extremist red. terrorizing the population because there's a moderate responsibility and if the syrian opposition read represents. you know the other factions on the ground in syria then you should take responsibility as well for stopping those actions and at least to try to distance itself from it's not just happened which hasn't done so far i think to this kind of confusion so i fear you want of course the west and the u.s.
in particular there's a syrian opposition broad i'm not really been clear and i've not taken nick condemned car bombings and similar actions clearly and kind of distanced themselves from groups that are likely to behave be behind some of them. in a week of mayhem across iraq has seen more than two hundred people killed and many more injured in the west divided since the end of the u.s. occupation it comes exactly ten years after george w. bush declared america's victory over set out to say that message is still washington's official line despite the unrelenting bloodshed that is guy to account imports many americans feel history is repeating itself. major combat operations in iraq have ended in the battle of iraq the united states and around. have prevailed president george w. bush delivered the message on may the first two thousand and three a declaration of success followed by years of bloody war when bush made that speech i was in the military and public affairs that was the stated mission you know
liberation and freedom for iraqis and it didn't seem to me like that what's happening because there was all this violence that was her head she waited by our presence for years after this speech as many americans and the whole world saw iraq as a part mire washington decided to send in twenty thousand more troops that surge cost the u.s. the lives of more than a thousand soldiers and many billions of dollars of taxpayers' money on his deathbed of iraq war veteran thomas young wrote a letter to george w. bush and dick cheney. was. both. born and a terrible lying in the church of american politics sometimes even doubting success can be perceived as blasphemous that's been true for the iraq surge even today will you correct or incorrect when you said that the search would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this conference viet nam we are correct or incorrect my
regret or no my reference to the survey and seeing what has changed. the question is where you are right or wrong my answer is i'll defer that judgment to history i think history has already made a judgment about the surge sir and you're on the wrong side of it chuck hagel is reference to vietnam was not uncalled for years into the vietnam war even as most americans saw the involvement there is a mistake thousands of u.s. troops continue to die because washington didn't want to admit it someone has to die and so that president nixon won't be and these are his words the first president to lose a war supporters of president bush say history will treat him more kindly regarding iraq but the history that is being lived by iraqis today is one that has neither peace nor security in a country ripped apart by terror six tarion violence and fears of a looming civil war in washington i'm going to shut down. or if it seems that
background military base in afghanistan is a us cause they're playing the ball into the ground in a massive fireball going on several american crew members in terms of wanting to. test his range to the libyan capital demanding that we don't make his ouster for women and good companies for our stop any more taking government posts we have the details on that on our website. us president barack obama's funny broken silence over the ongoing hunger strike at the guantanamo bay prison camp renewing calls to close the facade. he described the camp as a problem that is only going to step a statement came off the extra medical staff or rather the prison to treat at least one hundred inmates who are refusing food was stolen from the house and coalition to stop the war in this washington is just trying to protect its tarnished protection. but. i think the u.s. authorities control mode now because they know that with every prisoner who dies in
guantanamo bay the negative attention of the world is going to be focused on. and the shame that it has brought upon the united states of america unfortunately the the crimes that have been. banned are still being committed in guantanamo bay by the united states will not go away and the the attention of the world to negative attention is focused on these crimes or to other news making headlines across the world this hour in canada almost three billion dollars of counterterrorism guns are unaccounted for to the official in charge of the nation's finances that's part of a thirteen billion dollars set aside for anti terror operations between two thousand and one and two thousand and one i'd go to the general setting is report that the money is missing and that information of where it was spent can't be found also called for greater control of our financial records on government spending. in
central myanmar at least ten people have been injured in a surge of sectarian violence which two mosques were destroyed in hundreds of muslim home such a blaze simmering interfaith hatred exploded in march when fourteen muslims bad and thousands more displaced and a recent report by human rights watch used a fourth is in the country failing to curb the attacks which it describes as cleansing. up next prime interest parties new financial shock stay with us. money in ski theaters and maybe a second to be money in stevia to see which is both a cultural contemporary i don't know logic piece of the auditorium so join me to almost say honored c m a the second as we bring you the glitz the glamour and the

good afternoon and welcome to the very first edition of prime interest i'm perry and boring here in washington d.c. and here's the stories that we're keeping track of today. i have a good news america the treasury is in the green but only temporary the government said on monday that it would pay down thirty five billion dollars of its trillions of debt this quarter for this we can think higher than expected tax receipts but don't hold your breath because the treasury expects to plunge back into the red next quarter to the tune of two hundred twenty three billion dollars and that's with the fed buying about sixty percent of that amount don't worry though because bernanke says it's not monetization we'll talk about deficits and the debt crisis with peter schiff in a bit and one hundred years ago woodrow wilson to sign the federal reserve act with four gold pens quit being i'm drawing on the gold reserves but yesterday representative kevin brady called for evaluation of the fed he said when the house
isn't on fire we want to discuss you know what role the fire department said play with this review shut down the quantitative easing firehose that's spraying eighty five billion dollars in cash per month we'll have to see if this proposal can pick up steam when bernanke replacement is announced a later this year. and to mark another milestone it's been one hundred days since the president's second term in a press conference this morning he warned of serious probable use of chemical weapons while cautioning that more evidence must be gathered before taking action he did warn that the regime has crossed the red line we'll take a look into the fine print of military spending in a special segment today and here's what's in your interest.
